A winner and another giveaway!

Generator  32
I am one of these clueless people when it comes to computer related know-how. So to show you the above I copied and pasted. I am kind of shocked that it worked, but it did! Marla's Crafts: I don't know you so we will need to be in touch to get your address. I hope you enjoy Carl's book!
-------------------------------------------------------------
Months and months ago when I first started Hexies and knew that just normal hexagons was NOT for me I started designing those crazy Ahhhhhs. Then, I started searching for the perfect fabric. To me, the perfect fabric was something that created a kaleidoscope affect when fussy cut just right. First I set my sites on Jinny Beyer. But then, I discovered Jason Yenter.
OH MY!!

 It immediately became my mission to get my hands on some, and really, (besides the fact my husband was lying in a hospital bed and we needed food on the table) was the reason I started a fabric business. I wanted some so badly, and I wanted it for Ahhhh kits.

So, I did a pre-buy. I found there were many that loved it as much as I, although most in my fabric group had never heard of Jason Yenter or In the Beginning Fabric before.

That first pre-buy was of the Deco fabric line. I actually sold off most of what I had saved for kits but I do still have some around and am making a few ahhhs out of it. (I will share when I have a completed project.)

I am anxiously awaiting a new line. Oh not just me. Many are anxiously awaiting Mr. Yenter's newest line of fabric. I mean look at some of these prints:





And waiting have we been doing. Waiting and waiting and waiting.
It was supposed to be here already, and as yet it is not even on the way.
Sigh.

BUT...guess what?
I did get a few of these in stock:


Oh sorry, you can't buy one from me.
You see, Mr Yenter was so kind to sign my entire shipment of them. Ya, they sold out in minutes.
But he did something else too. He made sure I had a couple of copies just to give away :)

Would you like one? I will give one of the SIGNED copies away this week. Comments close on Friday.
The other copy...I am awaiting a later date :)

As for the fabric...I suppose we will TRY to wait patiently...
